roots and its consequences." (champagne popping and yelling) in the 1950's, psychoanalysis washed over popular culture. there was an obsession with psychoanalysis, and with the meaning of psychoanalysis. psychoanalysis taught us that under the surface of life, particularly domestic life, lay a whole set of unruly, chaotic, dark feelings, tension and dark, dirty little secrets. and now at the same time, billy wilder is making movies. and i think this is important in terms of staying power. (peter bogdonavich) i think, certainly, pictures in the 50's and 60's are satirical examinations of the various archetypes. look how she moves! that's just like jell-o on springs. must have some sort of built-in motor or something. i tell you, it's a whole different sex! wilder's "some like it hot" may be the most important romantic comedy of the 50's. it was the most commercially successful, but it was also the sharpest in the way that it dealt with the way men and women treat each other. have you tried american girls? why? was that anything? thanks just the same. you should see a doctor, a good

were winning 90 percent of the total cinema box office. (narrator) in the mid-30's, the national recovery act was declared unconstitutional but it took until 1948 for the supreme court to finally put its nail in the system's coffin. it ordered the majors to sell their cinemas and function as distribution and production companies only. the classic studio era was over. paramount was the first to consent and as a result, its profits dropped from $20 million to $6 million in one year. the studios were so efficient that it was an oligarchy and the government came in and said, "no, no." it was much more efficient when the studios made movies, distributed the movies, and exhibited the movies. that ended in 1948 with the paramount decree. no more theatre holdings, no more cash flow, can't pay the overhead. (thomas schatz) you can't maintain and run the factory. when you own theatres, you knew that you had a seller. that a picture would go in and do so much money and you could depend on that. now without the theatres, you didn't have that insurance. so there was a tendency to cut back on

) one thing that happens is accessibility to stars grows. as you move into the 50's, and the studios are collapsing, you have stars not being protected by the machinery of the studio any longer. they're out on the streets, they're getting interviews that aren't controlled, television is picking them up and showing them to you, so they become more known for who they really are. their private life was another role they were playing. (narrator) when lana turner's daughter stabbed her mother's lover, the public was avid for the lurid details of a star career seemingly in trouble. what they saw televised was tour-de-force performance. i said, don't, don't ever touch me again... i'm... i'm absolutely finished, this is the end... and i want you to get out. and after i said that, i was walking towards the door, and he was right behind me, and i opened it... (john waters) with a million photographers, and she's on the stand, she is lana turner. you can't not be lana turner when you're lana turner. it was effective testimony; cheryl got off. it was so fast... i, i truthfully thought she had hi

[ rock music plays ] partly due to the profound spiritual and cultural crisis afflicting u.s. society, and partly perhaps because of america's obsession with public confession, people expressed their innermost feelings, fantasies, and memories of mexico, mexicans, chicanos, and other people of color. i don't have any fears about mexico. i was in tijuana last march, a year ago. woman: i'm afraid that america will become a two-language country. i mean, my parents were immigrants, but they learned english. why can't you mexicans do the same? man: the character that i portray in "the temple of confessions," the pre-columbian vato, is a mixture of recognizable media images, how the media portrays the latino youth these days. ♪ 'cause i still feel the same ♪ 'cause i still feel the same ♪ a lot of the images are associated with chicanos, but exploded, magnified 200 times. woman: what are you doing? and who are you? we perfor

about 250 miles from end to end, it is dwarfed by mighty china. however, taiwan'ssmall s a powerful economic tiger. today its thriving high-tech industries hungrily eye china's enormous market, but until recently investment in china was forbidden. old antagonisms stemming from china's 1949 communist revolution have estranged taiwan from its motherland. even so, taiwanese entrepreneurs have moved into china. we'll hear from one geographer who sees taiwan acting as an interface region between chinese business and western technology. a big question here is whether business relationships can transcend and perhaps ease long-standing political tensions. the peak-hour traffic in taipei is evidence of taiwan's growth as a powerhouse of development. taiwan's affluen is reflected in the high level of motor-vehicle ownership. in the past, it became known around world as a producer of cheap labor-intensive goods, such as clothing and textiles. today it is a major player in the development and manufacture of high-tech computer and telecom pructs and among the world's most rapidly developing econ

allusion to fields teeming with game evoked in thesebronze s. apollo, the god of learning, still brought light to the world -as a roman lamp stand. alexander the great, once master of the world, was commemorated in a bronze statuette. the powerful hercules became a garden ornament. the elite built substantial art collections. they also ordered reproductions of greek works that appealed to them. several examples of the three graces were unearthed at pompeii, suggesting a single prototype offered by workshops on the bay of naples. the daughters of zeus represent plenty, joy, and beauty. that image continued to appeal to artists and connoisseurs through the ages. the works of art they commissioned -either for their own collections or for display in public places - were in a variety of styles. some were in the naturalistic classical style that prevailed in greece from the mid-5th century b.c. onward. the drapery falls in natural folds, clinging to the body to show an understanding of human anatomy. older styles were also popular. a marble statue of artemis displays the roman ability

for this shortage isanmade: iceland's enormous and technologically advanced fishing fleet s enough power to vacuum clean the ocean floor. to all cod stocks to replenish, the government imposed strict quotas, setting the total allowable catch at 25% of the estimated cod biomass, or weight of the whole adult population. like fishermen who face dwindling stocks off massachusetts and maine, elmar svenson is angry with his government. ( svenson speaking icelandic ) translator: there is enough bounty to be caught, plenty of fish. and, how shall i put this, they're making the country go bankrupt with these quotas. as a case in point, the boat is docked today. i cannot afford to pay the mortgage for the house. man: i've often told the fishermen, if they would go back to the boats they had in the 1920s with the same equipment as they had in the 1920s we wouldn't need any quotas. narrator: but since the 1990s, fishermen now begrudgingly agree: the quotas have stabilized cod stocks and maintained iceland's major source of income. in fact, the quotas have turned into very lucrative properties.

aware of when i'm in these places is that life goes on in there, and people who work in - the b.a.'s, the people who run them, have no idea - no idea of the linkages between and among the people who live there, how they look out for each other. now it's a murder mystery that happens in there - it's a great story. >> you see that? that's what i'm talking about, that we have these mental concepts that block out the flow of life. let me just quickly go through the eightfold path. yeah, just real quickly, we'll just blow right on through that, folks. but to give you some idea, first off, because the buddha has - you talked about a hosospital; dare we say a therapy? you got this illness because you're constantly thinking you're the center of the universe - well, here's the therapy. and it just cracks me up that this guy's putting all this out 2,500 years ago, and when we go through this, i'm just going to paint it in - i don't need to be sacrilegious, if we're even talking about a religion at this point - but to just paint it in a more pop way, because you can see the kinds of things he's
